4.13/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a hazy dark copper, tan head.

Belgian candy, high acidity and fruitiness. Definitely taste at cool or room temperature.

Flavor hints of toffee or slight coffee. Tropical fruits with deep hops and warm bite.

High carbonation is well balanced with silky and thicker texture.

I was overall pleasantly surprised with complexities and by far my favorite to come from Pete's Place so far.

3.84/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 4

Pours lightly hazy, dark brown-amber from a 22 oz bottle., Had a huge, medium density, tan head on top that settled fairly quickly.

Smell: Bready with dark fruits and subtle chocolate. [Served too cold, probably impairing the aroma and flavor.]

Taste: WAY more like a Belgian quad than expected, with a alcohol presence that seemed more like 9%. Also seemed more like a barrel-aged beer than one would expect. The apparent booziness is not unwelcome, and seems to add complexity, if perhaps overwhelming some more subtle flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium+ body with medium-high carbonation; harsh for style.

Overall: A pretty good, but not great, example of the dubbel style; Compared to a true Belgina dubbel, this one has a more intense flavor (more like a quad) and, perhaps, is slightly less aromatic.

Brought the bottle back from Oklahoma city a year ago...poured in a chalice....lost an ounce on the floor as this is a gusher! Minimal head quickly disappeared. Aroma of raisins, figs, dark malt, caramel. Moderate carbonation, full moutfeel, overall quite tasty. Notes of raisins, caramel, dark malts, galangal root, and a subtle alcohol warmth. As it warms up more melon rind notes appear...small sediment floaties at the end. Nice complexity and flavors.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A growler from Ale Yeah, Roswell, GA served in a Westmalle chalice.

A - A dark bourbon brown with a fizzy head that runs away quickly and no lacing from my sampling.

S - Sweet caramel notes with a hint of buttery bread.

T - The caramel and roasty malt goodness comes through on the front end of the palate. Surprisingly the middle carries a little hops nugget. It leaves on the back-end with a nice buttery belgian taste you would expect with some of the roasted taste coming back for an encore.

M - The battle between the tight carbonation and the slippery feel (Who said Diacetyl is a bad thing) keep your mouth from being bored.

O - A very good and fairly complex representation of the style. If you are looking for a dubbel with a little something extra then this beer won't disappoint at all. Yet another quality effort from the little brewery from OK.

Serving type: growler
